aspires which is the history of the kgb in america. i don't think he fabricat the homo book you should be careful because in the same way i was careful whether or not i.f. stone hitchhiked to massachusetts so you do have some files that say he had conversations with some when he may or may not have known was the kgb agent. you can say that with confidence that there may be these documents which may say yes, we do not know that because we cannot say them so let's assume that they do. what do we know? 1936 i.f. stone had conversations with somebody who was a reporter working for the soviet wire service in america. he may or may not have known was a kgb agent and may or may not have been friendly or helpful. in 1936 he was a enthusiastic fellow traveler and very enthusiastic of the american communist party and premise supportive of tough soviet union in so far was the only country that supplied arms to the anish republic. also he was terrified of the threat of fascism. in 1937 i.f. stone of became his name because he was terrified fascism might come to america and his family was targeted.

presidentle candidate and my choice was walter cronkite. anchor for everybody. trusted man in america. and i was voted down unanimously. everybody said, don't be silly. he'll never accept. we'll look bad when he turns it down so. let's go to a more mainstream politician, which we did. >> why did you think walter cronkite would even take the job? >> well i knew he was very much apposed to the vietnam war because about six months before that, he had come back from vietnam and immediately called me and asked to see senator robert kennedy, and two of them met. i with us there and he began by saying senator you have to run for president because this wore has got to end and went on to say how unwinning it was. said we would win a village in the daytime and have to give it back at the night. vietnamese in the south may not like the north, but they like us less. i knew and kennedy said to him, well then i'll run for president if you run for the senate in new york and cronkite laughed and said i can't. we're closing the first place, i don't live in new york. i live in connecticut and i'm not a demo
should not forget senator kennedy's liberal vision for america never became a reality. during his lifetime, he was on the losing side of almost every major issue. from nuclear disarmament, to welfare, reform, for amnesty to illegal aliens. and today the impassioned opposition to obama care at these town hall events is yet another public repudiation of senator kennedy's political vision. so, if democrats think that calling nationalized health care the ed ward kennedy memorial health care act is going to safe it? history teaches us another lesson. shut democrats proceed down this membershippive path, the next big memorial will be for the democratic majority in congress. and that's the memo. now on to our top story. a different take on this. joining us from new york, democratic strategist tara dowel and conservative columnist andrea tantaros. this is a tough subject because the country is remembering the contributions of senator kennedy whether you are republican or democrat, you honor the man's memory and what he tried to do with people. whether you disagree with him or agree with h

on as the president of the united states tries to say, hey, america, i have it right, here's the plan, please accept it. it's not going well. why is it that it's not going well? is it the republican's fault? perhaps it's not. steve: perhaps it is the fact that the president and his people are selling it the wrong way. and, in fact, if you take a look at what's going on right now, there's kind of an intraparty war going on because over the weekend kathleen cebellius said that government option was not an essential part of the president's plan and the far left suddenly goes, wait a minute, this isn't going to pass without that. plus you look at how there's been the model on that and how the president has tried selling it essentially in the beginning as it's going to be about costs and stuff like that. he didn't really show americans how it's going to impact them. that's been the real disconnect. i've already got insurance and i like my insurance. you want me to change everything? how's it going to impact me? the president has failed in that respect. gretchen: there are three competing bills right now.

in washington, and i may not be the best journalists in america, but i figured there was a story behind it. this is the kind of helmet that was worn by soldiers in the british empire in the late 19th century when the british empire was in its glory, and they used to say the sun never sets on the union jack meaning that the british flag was flying somewhere in the world. there is the story about this helmet and about bruce, and it relates to you. i'm going to put this away for now and tell the story a title bit later. i'm not a gang expert. you're the gang experts. i am a writer. "no boundaries" is not an academic work. not a textbook concept sociology. it not is an encyclopedia of latino gangs. it is not a handbook for investigators. there are very good books like that that i have read that are available. some of them on the web site of the cgia written by gang detectives in orange county. but what my book, "no boundaries," and it is a work of journalism, narrative nonfiction. it tells real stories about real people in real cases. i aim to describe through the story the story of the trauma

was essentially saying was that president obama continues to take america off its war footing. it started after he got into office, announced he was going to close gitmo, move the terrorists out of military tribunals. you couldn't say war on terror. now this week two more decisions. one to possibly prosecute cia agents and two is this idea to form this nebulous interagency unit, run out of the white house, that's going to be in charge of interrogating high value detainees. all of these decisions are part of a continuum which is to take america off its war footing. it erects the walls between the fbi and cia which bush and cheney had torn down and rolls back the authority of the cia which is exactly the opposite of what the bush and cheney folks did in the wake of 9/11. >> mara, i want to go back to this question about the effectiveness of the enhanced interrogation. bill is right. the record is that khalid shaikh mohammed was not cooperative. he was water boarded 183 pounds. he started singing like a canary. can you draw conclusions? >> the thing that's impossible for the opponents of these techni

oh, no. the big ratings are here because we're speaking to main stream america, but fromme's website and medved's remarks on it suggests that something else is going on, that you can generate big ratings by getting a tiny portion of the country to listen all day. what are the implications of this just for political discourse? what do politicians think they're hearing? >> this is incredibly important. i saw a poll recently. it said 77% of the electorate thought republicans had been too conciliatory to barack obama. this is the republican party that stonewalled and rejected everything. 7% is a small number. in this nation that's 14 million people. if you got those 14 million people to do anything, watch your show, listen to your radio program, if you got a small percentage of them to show up in whatever congressional district that seems like a lot of people. so it's a big country and at the fringes there are a lot of people, even if it's a small percentage of the electorate. one thing that's so disturbing and frustrating about the discussion about health care is that fringe is being co
